WHAT IS GRIEF SHARE?

If you’ve lost a spouse, child, family member, or friend to death, you’ve probably found there are not many people who understand the deep hurt you feel. This can be a confusing time when you feel isolated and have many questions about things you’ve never faced before.  Although it may be hard for you to feel optimistic about the future right now, we would like to help you move toward it.

Our next meeting is April 16 - Grief and your relationships

We meet every Tuesday from 1 to 3 p.m.   If you are interested, call Marty Cortez at (985) 227-0873, Arvella Dupre at (985) 414-4126 or St. Mary’s Church at (985) 537-3204.

CCD Registration

St. Mary's Church has begun CCD registration for next year.  Each child was given a registration form in class.  Please fill it out as soon as possible and return it to their CCD teacher.  Just a reminder to registered parishioners with children going to 10th grade at any Catholic High School,  they must attend CCD/Confirmation classes here.  We also have registration forms in the back of Church for any new students. If you have any questions, contact Linda Danos in the Administration Office.

BRICK SALE

In an effort to beautify the grounds in front St. Mary's Church Parish Office, we have begun a bricked area which can be used as a prayer place.  Remember your loved ones in a special way by purchasing a memorial brick(s) to complete this area.  By purchasing a brick you are not only creating an area for prayer and remembering your loved ones but also helping St. Mary to reduce the financial debt.  You can purchase your memorial brick through the Online Giving tab or call the Church Parish Office for more information.
